Visitors will then be encouraged to record their thoughts on paper while listening to the work, hence the “musing”. This sound show will be a multi-artist installation and is open to all sound artists whether you design digitally or capture clandestinely.

Artists are encouraged to submit more than one track. Please note, all submissions are considered final, and will be presented as such.

Mail or drop off cds in paper or jewel tone case with title, artists' name and contact information clearly written on face of cd.

Nov. 2005: Open call for Corporate Pin-Up show

This show occurred in 2005 and thus is closed. We still have the open call PDF available, because we're packrats and can't get ourselves to delete it, but we are compelled to say all this because people have been blindly clicking on the link and then asking us about including their work in the show. It was in 2005.

Oct. 2005's SWITCH show: Film and video screening at Eyedrum on Friday, October 28.

This screening is in conjunction with the Switch art show at ED and is the final program of the Available Light: Switch Cinema series. This is also the official film series for Atlanta Celebrates Photography 2005! See the SWITCH press release (PDF, 175 kB) for more information about the Switch show in general.

The October 28th screening will be a showcase of local/regional work that fits this theme. Luckily all film experiments with light, so our definition is pretty broad and we are open to anything you may want to submit. Length is also pretty open but keep in mind we want to include as many artists as possible. Format options include video/dvd, 16mm film and super 8 film (other options may be available, so contact us if you have another format you would like to use... We are also able to make DVD dubs of Beta, DBeta, miniDV, DVC Pro, Vhs-C, and Digital High8 tapes in advance for the screening). If you are interested in creating something for the show or if you have something you would like to submit already please send submissions by October 18th to:

Switch Cinema Series
PO BOX 5512
Atlanta GA 31107 
Contact Shana Wood at 678-984-6538.
We can not be responsible for tapes sent through the mail or left at Eyedrum, so if it is an only copy-- PLEASE CALL SHANA and she will GLADLY pick it up!
